This amazing envelope remembers the "International philatelic Exhibition in Riccione in 1998". On the right side a stamp (0,60) evokes the memory of Indro Montanelli (1909 - 2001).
Indro Montanelli was an Italian journalist and historian, known for his new approach to writing history in books such as History of the Greeks and History of Rome. He has been widely considered the greatest Italian journalist of the XX century.
A commemorating cancelation on "10th anniversary of the Philatelic and Numismatics of Salerno Association" is the cherry on the cake.
